Had to tape it, but just finished watching it now. I actually don't remember a whole lot except for Amy Smart ripping her buttons. My gods, what a boring show. I thought this was supposed to be edgy, smart and stylish. Instead, it was boring, boring and boring. None of the characters were even mildly interesting. Ray Liotta displays absolutely no charisma here, and for the lead of a show like this, he really should. The others were bland and interchangeable. Virginia Madsen's character, though lovely to look at, didn't really grab me either. The pace of the show was agonizingly slow too.
After that one guy died, I spent the rest of the episode trying to remember which one he was, what he did earlier in the ep. I couldn't for the life of me remember anything about him. Okay, so they're not going to do much character development for someone they're killing off in the first ep, but come on!
If you want to watch a crime drama done right, try to find (or download) the five aired episodes of Heist. Yeah, it was cancelled after ep #5, but it was miles ahead of this bore-fest. It had a charismatic lead, interesting characters, great dialogue, and interesting situations. Smith was awful. I'll be avoiding it like the plague.
